Over 30 years of painting and drawing, my work has reflected my interest in light, colour, landscape and the spirit of place. I'm fascinated by layers of  time which create overall harmony and the limit of time, the discord, that we all experience, and the imprint of both left on the Cornish landscape.

Inspiration often stems from the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated ideas, and the female form is ever present in my work. Through this, I hope to transport the viewer to another realm. Postcards and prints of my work are available.

September Saturday the 5th& Sunday the 13th, 11.00am-5.00pm.  weather permitting in Town Gardens.  Alternate venue 74 Goddard Avenue. SN1 4HS. 
Within my artwork, I, like many artists am exploring a way to 'make my mark'. When drawing and painting and working with clay I try to depict a natural energy within myself, the object and the material used and attempt to make it one. My art work exists because of my fascination and reverence for nature. The intense examination of plants and human body gives me a great deal of pleasure and within my work, juxtapositions can often be made between the two. I find the interconnections between different forms of life fascinating very time I stumble upon them.
